Getting Started with OpenShift

Sander van Vugt

OpenShift is a Red Hat hybrid cloud product for distributing, managing and orchestrating containers based on Kubernetes and DevOps tools. Kubernetes is the current de facto standard for managing containers in corporate IT, and Red Hat has added integration with DevOps tools to make OpenShift a valuable tool that can be used for managing containers. This training will prepare DevOps staff to work with OpenShift. The training will get you started with OpenShift and show you how to organize a workflow in OpenShift, starting with source code of any application, and resulting in a managed and scalable container in OpenShift.

What you'll learn-and how you can apply it

  • Understanding OpenShift
  • Understanding Challenges in Container Life Cycle Management
  • Installing an OpenShift POC environment
  • Creating Kubernetes Resource in OpenShift
  • Using Source-to-Image to create applications
  • Managing Routes
  • Using OpenShift Web Console to create applications
  • Deploying multi-container applications with OpenShift

This training course is for you because...

You are a developer, system administrator, IT architect, or working in devops, and looking for an introduction to working with OpenShift, which can be used as one of the key ingredients in a hybrid cloud environment.
